The Consulting Consortium and Intellego have joined forces to offer training programmes designed to help advisers pass QCF level four.
TCC says programmes are based on individual firms’ needs and packages are available for both written and alternative exams.
It says the training is based on Apex standards, which all QCF level four qualifications are built around, so it is relevant to all RDR-compliant qualifications, regardless of the exam provider.
The service will also provide compliance support to help firms adjust to the RDR requirements and the FSA’s tougher supervision regime.
TCC director of learning solutions Jill Wade says the cost of the service varies depending on firms’ requirements.
She says: “There is no getting away from the fact that the RDR is a complex area and with cost continuing to mount, it is essential that firms look for cost-effective but highly engaging training and compliance programmes.
“There is no one-size-fits-all solution to firms’ RDR requirements and it is vital that firms address professional development within their organisations.”
